Bruce,


We have routinely used the A.G.T.C. microtiter gel filtration plates for
over a year and a half.  The resin (and membrane) are not re-usable, but
unused wells on a 96-well block can be re-hydrated, stored and used
later.  Also, these blocks can be easily made in house...but not with much
of a cost savings.
